In February 2021, Stand for Health Freedom gathered a panel of experts to discuss evidence of data manipulation and willful misconduct by the CDC, the FDA, and other federal agencies during the COVID crisis. Our panel, which included researchers, doctors, lawyers, medical ethicists, educators, and lawmakers, concluded that a grand jury investigation must be launched to hold these agencies accountable for the federal laws broken and the high price paid by the American public.

SHF Co-founder Sayer Ji moderated. He was joined by Dr. Peter Breggin, world-renowned psychiatrist and medical ethicist; Mary Starrett, Board of Commissioners Chair, Yamhill County, Oregon; Dr. David Martin, founder and CEO of M·CAM, Inc. and University of Virginia Batten Fellow; Marc Thielman, Superintendent of Oregon’s Alsea School District; Ana Garner, attorney and legal mediator; Dennis Linthicum, Oregon state senator; Dr. James Lyons-Weiler, biomedical research scientist and public health policy journal editor-in-chief; and Dr. Henry Ealy, naturopathic physician and biomedical research scientist.
Sayer introduced the discussion without mincing words: “We’ll show you all the ways that the CDC manipulated data and inflated COVID cases and fatalities, ignored recoveries, and promoted public health policies based on faulty data.” He continued, “Too many times throughout this crisis, we’ve seen public officials attempt to sidestep accountability and double down on ineffective policies that are based more on assumptions than actual science and verifiable data.”
Sayer explained the panelists collectively invested thousands of hours of investigative research into these allegations. “Evidence,” he said, “that we feel justifies a thorough investigation of the CDC’s conduct during the COVID crisis.”
The robust discussion was organized into 5 roundtables.
During the first roundtable, Martin revealed that his organization, M·CAM, had been monitoring potential violations in biological and chemical weapons research since 1999. They found that research was being done into “amplifying the pathogenicity of beta coronaviruses.” Alarmingly, a patent was issued in 2002 to the University of North Carolina (UNC) – Chapel Hill. “That patent,” said Martin, “covered the specific applications of modifying properties of coronavirus so that it infected human lung tissue.”
Patents have also been issued on the genome of the SARS virus, the amplification of it, and the treatment of the resulting disease. By 2016, the coronavirus, according to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, was “poised for human emergence.”
Martin also explained that multiple false statements have been made regarding the coronavirus. This was not a novel virus or novel disease. “All of the clinical presentations of the COVID-19 virus were seen in China … in 2013 and 2014,” he said. SARS-CoV-2 was then altered in 2016 at UNC – Chapel Hill. “Not a single thing about what we’ve been told is novel or new.” Though statements like this were labeled “misinformation,” members of the U.S. Congress are taking this theory so seriously they are under investigation by a special subcommittee.
This is important, because the fear of a novel virus is what drove the public to fearfully heed any government mandates, such as lockdowns, masking, business shut-downs, school closures, and more. And after the fear comes the money.
In 2016, Peter Daszak of EcoHealth Alliance, who Martin said has funneled several million U.S. taxpayer dollars to the Wuhan Institute, said that “a key driver is the media, and the economics will follow the hype.”
“This was actually a commercial venture when it started,” said Martin, “It was controlled centrally by the CDC and the National Institutes of Health and ultimately the Department of Health and Human Services. They are the financial beneficiaries and their colleagues and their commercial partners are the ones profiteering on the back of the manipulation of this information.”
In the second roundtable, Ealy explained that his peer-reviewed research paper on COVID-19 data collection came into being because “good people asked questions and didn’t take a narrative for the answer.”
“We kept asking other people to verify what we had found,” Ealy said. “We made sure attorneys verified it, we made sure scientists verified it, we made sure colleagues verified it, doctors … we made sure that what we were saying was accurate before we came out with it.”
“As of February 16, ,” reported Ealy, “there was a variance of 8,496 fatalities between what the CDC is reporting for the state of New York … and what the New York State Department of Health is reporting for total fatalities. This cannot happen! A variance of 10, 15 fatalities between the CDC and a state, sure, … but when you have a growing variance that’s been going on since April 30 and has now reached 8,496, it calls into question your ability to do something very simple: basic math.”
On March 24, 2020, a document was issued by the CDC on behalf of the National Vital Statistics System that changed how death certificate reporting occurred. The document said, in part, that “the underlying cause depends on what and where conditions are reported on the death certificate, however, the rules for coding and selection of the underlying cause of death are expected to result in COVID-19 being the underlying cause more often than not (emphasis added).”
And what was the answer to the question of whether COVID-19 should be listed as the cause of death only with a confirmed test, to which, Ealy says, most doctors would answer yes? The document stated, “COVID-19 should be reported on the death certificate for all decedents where the disease caused or is assumed to have caused or contributed to death (emphasis added).”
“Really?!” exclaimed Ealy, “Assumed?!”
The document further stated: “If the decedent had other chronic conditions such as COPD or asthma that may have also contributed, these conditions can be reported in part 2.”
“Here’s the big deal about that,” Ealy commented, “That is not the way that was done for the previous 17 years! Comorbid, pre-existing conditions were always tracked in part 1, not part 2. Big, big change right there.”
And after showing a comparison of death certificates between a death from influenza and a death from COVID, Ealy added, “And … they were financially incentivized to do it. That’s the part that’s unethical and unacceptable.”
Ealy further explained that if these changes had not been made to the way deaths are coded, he estimates that instead of 348,255 COVID deaths, the reported number would only be 20,895.
And Ealy reminded us that these death counts don’t even consider the effects of the experimental COVID jabs. “We need an independent audit of all death certificates,” stated Ealy.
Lyons-Weiler spoke about the flawed COVID tests, saying that the tests were so overly sensitive that many false positives were created. The World Health Organization (WHO) has talked about “dialing back the sensitivity” but Lyons-Weiler said the damage from so many false positives that served to shut down society has already been done.
“They forgot about the cost of the false positives,” said Lyons-Weiler. “They forgot about the suicides, the deaths of despair, the hundreds of thousands of businesses that have been shut down. The teen suicide rate is an unacceptable public health tragedy right now in the United States of America. And unless and until we have a bare-all, CDC come clean and say, you know what, you’re right. … We made a mistake, now we can start putting the country back together. But are they going to do it? I doubt it.”
As a result, Lyons-Weiler has created what he calls “Plan B,” which is a “decentralization, depoliticization, and deincentivization of public health” in this country. “I want a big, serious sea change in the United States,” he said.
“I encourage everyone to read this [Plan B] document,” Ji concurred.
In the third roundtable, Breggin spoke of the “collateral damage to the social fabric” of humanity, something Thielman was seeing up close in his rural Oregon school district.
Thielman reopened in-person classes in his school district during the COVID lockdowns in August 2020. As of our panel discussion in February 2021, they still had had no COVID cases at the school or any cases connected to the school being open. “And most schools in Oregon are still closed,” Thielman said, despite rising “suicide rates, home stress, and domestic violence.”
“I wrote a letter encouraging counties to open up,” Thielman said, “because we had so many kids trying to harm themselves. The hospitalization rate and visits to the emergency room [were up] for students attempting suicide and then those kids [were] tying it back to being isolated, not being at school, being stuck at home.”
Breggin agreed, saying that we need a different view of children, rather than as a market for products, such as the experimental vaccines now being touted. “Vaccines have not been tested on children,” he said.
In the fourth roundtable, Garner stated that when you look at all the data, you find that there’s no public health emergency at all. In her state of New Mexico, the data shows a death rate close to 200,000. But per an analysis of death certificates, “only 15% of these [people] actually died with no comorbidities or trauma.”
In one case in Colorado, said Garner, someone who died with gunshot wounds was coded as dying from COVID, due to a positive PCR test. The local coroner asked the governor to remove COVID as the cause of death and the governor refused.
“What do you do when somebody is coded as COVID and their family should be able to get an accidental death insurance policy?” asked Garner. “But COVID isn’t an accidental death, it’s a contagion. It’s usually excluded from insurance claims. There are so many ramifications that can come from coding the deaths incorrectly.”
“And the next step from this,” said Garner, “is mandatory vaccines.”
The PCR tests are also a concern, she said. They “have a false positive rate of anywhere from 70-90%.” The tests were “marketed under emergency use authorization, which means they didn’t get tested.” Garner also addressed the “myth” of asymptomatic transmission of the disease. “In an almost 10,000-person study done in Wuhan,” she explained, “there was zero asymptomatic transmission. Zero.”
Nevertheless, that myth is driving many of the “very oppressive measures” such as “mask wearing, social distancing, and isolation.”
“Science in this country got hijacked by industry,” said Martin. “This is racketeering, this is anti-trust violations, this is price-fixing … and it’s being perpetrated using taxpayer dollars. This is, in fact, a criminal conspiracy and it needs to be called what it is.”
“There has to be an investigation” into these criminal acts, said Martin, calling these events “an absolute assault to everything we stand for in this country.”
In the final roundtable, Lyons-Weiler summarized all this as “willful misconduct at the highest levels.” He gave a slide presentation explaining diagnosis and death ascertainment protocol, showing where data was manipulated. “We need to basically replace the CDC,” he said, stating that they’re only interested in disease they can attempt to prevent with a vaccine.”
His goal? That “your medical wellness can never again become a political commodity.”
Speaking of wellness, Ealy shared some simple ways to ensure that people avoid illness. “The CDC has known for years … that 35-45% of Americans are deficient in vitamin A, 37-46% of Americans are deficient in vitamin C, 65-95% of Americans are deficient in vitamin D, 60-84% of Americans are deficient in vitamin E, and 11-15% of Americans are deficient in zinc. It’s not a coincidence that each of these nutrients I just mentioned are key biochemical players in a well-nourished and effective immune system.”
Ealy’s team has found hundreds of evidence-based, clinical trials where nutrients were successfully used to treat COVID. One detailed 50 cases of moderate to severe COVID in Wuhan. After being given intravenous vitamin C, patients’ hospital stays were 3-5 days shorter, there were no side effects, no deaths, and 100% successful management of cytokine storms.
When asked to summarize the panel discussion, Breggin said that we’re probably setting our children way back and “teaching them to be afraid of each other, teaching them to be afraid of their government, teaching them that nobody cares enough about them to risk getting COVID-19.”
“We need to open the schools up,” said Breggin. “We don’t have a medical crisis … we have a political crisis … and a social crisis. … We’re really looking at something much bigger than COVID-19. We’re looking at the death of freedom.”
“It shouldn’t be an act of bravery to speak truth,” said Ealy. “Join us in taking action. We can’t sit on the sidelines on this one. … It’s about our children and our humanity.”
Sayer closed by asking everyone to “be part of taking back control of our destinies.” Transparency, informed consent, parental rights, and more are all at stake here.
